As we enter the month of July, we’re potentially only a few weeks away from the official release of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3. As a result, we’ve been learning more and more about the upcoming wearable and, now, a fresh leak may have pinpointed the Galaxy Watch 3’s price point.
If you’re in the market for a new Wear OS smartwatch and happen to like classically styled watches, then the Fossil Gen 5 Carlyle is going to be for you. Fossil is one of the few Wear OS watchmakers out there that continues to produce not only good looking wearables but also adds top-of-the-line specs to the equation. The Carlyle has a classic look that can work for almost any occasion with swappable bands, snappy performance, and a speaker for calls. Fossil has some other great choices as well. Whether it’s a sports focus, fashion, or even a hybrid watch — Fossil has an option for you.

One of our favorite Wear OS watches of the last two years was the Ticwatch C2, featuring a clean, refined design at an affordable price point. This year, Mobvoi is upgrading that watch into the Ticwatch C2+, bumping up to 1GB of RAM, which has become the norm for Wear OS.
